A dual-boron-cored luminogen capable of sensing and imaging

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new dual-boron-cored luminogen ligated with a nitrogen-containing multidentate ligand and four bulky phenyl rings was readily synthesized. The unique molecular structure endows this BN-containing luminogen with rich photophysical properties in either solution or in the solid state, including a large Stokes shift, aggregation induced emission activity and reversible piezochromism. Furthermore, this BN-containing luminogen exhibits good capabilities for imaging living cells and sensing of fluoride anions.
